Liam Neeson  has reportedly stepped in after Mel Gibson’s Hangover 2 cameo was canceled due to cast concerns.

Neeson told Variety his A-Team co-star Bradley Cooper offered him the part. “I just got a call to do a one day shoot on Hangover 2 as a tattooist in Thailand, and that’s all I know about it,” he said. “I just laughed my leg off when I saw The Hangover. I was shooting in Berlin earlier this year and rented it on the hotel TV.”

Neeson flew out to the set and shot his cameo on Thursday, the same day that director Todd Phillips released his statement announcing Gibson would not be appearing in the movie.
